SGA’s Higher Ed Group led the process as “Design Architect” on 71,000 square feet of renovations and additions for

peabody college of education at Vanderbilt university.

SGA designed a 16,000-square-foot “jewel box” connector addition that serves as a new student center for graduate programs; 3,000-square-feet are used as active learning classrooms, fulfilling Peabody College’s wish to create a new school center.

SGA partnered with local Nashville firm, and “Architect of Record” Centric Architecture.

The SGA redesign split the boxy building in two; replacing the concrete walls with glass added depth to the façade and created a light-filled atrium lobby with café and lounge.

Seeking LEED Gold, challenges included full upgrades for all services, state-of-the-art IT/AV instructional spaces, and historic restorations of the exterior.
